About me

Hello, my name is Tabonga but people call me Toby (With an I) soo... Tobi.


I am doing a masters in Chemical Engineering Student at the University of Manchester. Chemical Engineering is mostly Physics and Math which sounds hard and boring.... and it is. But my love for Math pretty much overrides the difficulty of the subject. I originally wanted to go to university to do medicine to become a doctor but I realised I didn't find the biology side of it as exciting as physic...

Hello, my name is Tabonga but people call me Toby (With an I) soo... Tobi.


I am doing a masters in Chemical Engineering Student at the University of Manchester. Chemical Engineering is mostly Physics and Math which sounds hard and boring.... and it is. But my love for Math pretty much overrides the difficulty of the subject. I originally wanted to go to university to do medicine to become a doctor but I realised I didn't find the biology side of it as exciting as physics. Sooo, Chemical Engineering it is.


I came out with 4A*s 2As and 2Bs in GCSEs in which the A*s were in Math, Chemistry, Biology, Physics and at the time I hadn't realised I liked Math as much as I do until I had to chose which A-Level subjects I wanted to do.


I finished College with AAA in Math Chemistry and Biology. I wish I had just done that little bit more to get A*s and luckily I figured out where I went wrong and carried that information into university.


Currently, in university, I am the leader of a Society in which we meet every week for 2 hours and host activities for people to partake in. I started the society with a small group of others in the first week of our 1st year, which apparently is unheard-off.


My hobbies currently consist of Digital Art and C# Programming. Both are difficult to get into but with a little bit of research, it becomes easier to do and almost becomes like second nature.

My main tutoring subjects are Math and Chemistry for both ALevel, AS Level and GCSE. However, I am also capable of tutoring for AQA Biology ALevel, AS Level, GCSE and Physics GCSE.


My first session with a student would start by quickly going through the exam specification and noting which topics are difficult for the student. Any subsequent sessions would start by asking the student what they have learnt from that day at school which they don't understand, or to continue from the last session, or to continue down the list of difficult topics created. However, the starting format is flexible depending on the situation. The session would then follow as to go through the topic starting with an introduction, a quick showing of an example followed by an in-depth explanation of the example, then any questions are to be asked and answered. Lastly ending with a few exam questions, and then a small number of questions are to be set as a 'homework' to be completed for the next session.


The progress of a specific topic is tracked via the ability to complete ever more difficult questions.

If there is no progress, more time can be devoted to that specific topic encouraging them along the way.

Students are encouraged by visibly seeing their progress and how they have improved, so a visible and clear progression graphic can be used to help encourage the student.
